Tyler, Texas — On Sunday morning hundreds piled in the pews of Mobberly Baptist Church in Longview for the church's "Patriotic Celebration". The service began with a music special and flag presentation..
Senior Associate Pastor Dr. Greg Zachary says, "We had those who had served, or are currently serving, stand as their flag was presented."
After a moment of prayer, guest speaker U.S.. Congressman Louie Gohmert took to the stage to share his sermon, "Freedom vs. Tyranny".
Congressman Gohmert kept with the patriotic theme, using political figures such as John Adams to draw Biblical illustrations. It was all to get across his sermon's message, that God needs to be involved with our government.
Gohmert says, "When you really analyze it's only when you really base the government on the teachings of Jesus that there is enough freedom to worship."
